The NCE has established a small, cost efficient office with low overheads at 20 Nachtigal Street near Ausspannplatz. All overhead costs as well as seven of the eight programme areas, are fully funded. This means that all other funds raised, donations made and financial contributions to projects go directly into the field – no overheads.
